How to Make Grandma's Boiled Haddock with Brown Butter


  1. Melt the butter and let it brown, but not burnt.

    Boil the Haddock with the onion slowly until tender. I simmer it as in poaching.
  2. Drain. Save the fish broth for making Seafood chowder or Clam chowder.

    Place the fish and onions on a hot serving dish and drizzle melted not brown butter over it. Garnish with chopped parsley or chopped dill or capones.
  3. Serve with mashed potatoes amd a green salad.

    This is an old German dish.
